Above the town of Courchevel 1850, the Mercure has an enviable doorstep skiing position. 30 seconds to a few minutes maximum to ski down the main lift area depending on your ability (it's a green run so should be accessible to all levels). You could also take the Jardin Alpin gondola down to town if you aren't skiing or if it's your first time on the slopes - it's a short walk away.

The hotel overlooks Lake Biollay and you have fantastic views from La Laiterie Brasserie's terrace whilst you enjoy some hearty mountain food. Restaurant La Montagnette serves up more regional dishes, expect lashings of delicious Reblochon cheese, cured meats and fondues. Or relax beside the fire in the bar enjoying a quiet night in. The Mercure offers the ultimate convenience with direct access to the 3 Valleys ski area at much better value than you may think. Don't expect ultra-modern, stylish furnishings. Do expect slope-side convenience, friendly staff and a sought after balcony as standard.

What we like

- Location on the slopes means you can ski to and from the hotel
- Each room has a balcony
- Crackling fire in the bar

Worth knowing

- The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the town centre
- The outdoor pool is not heated during winter

What others have said

Good but simply Russia After staying in a palace in Monaco, we continued our journey in a beautiful ski resort, we were disappointed with the Mercure hotel, low prices but small rooms, little comfort, lots of people... Rated 4 on TripAdvisor
Not what we expected...OK Buenos Aires, Argentina We changed hotels for the first time after many years coming to Courchevel 1850. We noticed that Mercure was really very well located. You can ski in practically to the ski room if there's sufficient... Rated 3 on TripAdvisor
Rather Disappointing Fleet, United Kingdom I am 2 days into my week stay with 2 friends and so much is true from previous reviews. Hotel location is fantastic and staff are lovely. Rooms are ok but rather tired as is the boot room and most... Rated 3 on TripAdvisor

The Mercure hotel is in the Jardin Alpin area of Courchevel 1850 just above the main town. It is beside a green slope meaning easy access for all abilities. In the evening it is a 15 walk down to the town centre or you can catch the Jardin Alpin gondola.
